Subject: an object lesson in....
More than anything else, this film illustrates how stock footage can be used in the service of the storyline.

The story line is wooden and thin and, laugh at it as we may now, it's just blatant Birch-style propaganda.

I'm a Gerald Mohr fan from his radio days and so I watched the whole thing. Others may not have as much stamina for stock footage.
